Hi! I'm Tim. 👋

Some things that I'm excited about include

I live in Vancouver, Canada, which stands on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, and Sel̓íl̓witulh First Nations. I grew up outside Washington, DC; you may also know me from Boston or SoCal.

Some of my current roles are

Previous roles included data scientist and experimentation platform lead for the Firefox web browser, co-maintainer of the Homebrew package manager, and applications engineer at Boreal Genomics.

I trained in biomedical engineering, with an emphasis on the macrophage response to implanted biomaterials, with Dr. Wendy Liu at UC Irvine, and earned a bachelors degree in engineering from Olin College of Engineering.
